Activities

GOLF

Come and discover a training area of over 2 hectares, exclusively dedicated to golfing: a driving range (300m in length), a wedging and pitching area as well as a putting green area (about ten training holes).
Amateurs and professionals alike can enjoy hitting a few balls in a verdant setting that offers a panoramic view of the Monts du Lyonnais, against a backdrop of the bicentennial trees and the beautiful Valinches Château.
Spaces designed and created according to the technical advice of Laurent Puig, a state graduate monitor, former professional player and recognized as one of the best French coaches.
Equipment available on request. An introduction to golf is available upon reservation.

PETANQUE

Enjoy a petanque party in the shade of the lime trees in the afternoon or evening.
Entirely custom created, according to the recommendations of the famous Maison Obut.

6 petanque pitches and bowls are at your disposal.

HEALTH TRAIL

Give your lungs a fresh air workout on a health trail covering over 2 kms in the heart of the Domaine. A moment to commune with nature, to discover and to laugh as well as bond during sports activities that are accessible to all.
Along the health trail, you can admire nature in all its splendor: Bicentennial trees, the stream, the old mill, clearings…
You can expect some delightful visual and auditory surprises.

Opening soon.

  • Stage golf Loire (42)
  • Pétanque St-Bonnet le Chateau
  • Séminaire Loire (42)
  • Montgolfière Haut Forez

SCOOTER RENTAL

Discover the nature trails around the Domaine with their breathtaking views. Between country roads and the medieval village, explore the many ‘scootable’ routes on offer for a family walk or sporting workout.
Fully electric scooters for a convivial moment for novices and adepts alike.
Upon prior reservation.

HOT AIR BALLOON

There are two options available: free flight or captive flight.
If you choose the free flight option, you board very early in the morning from the Domaine de Valinches (subject to favorable weather conditions) and fly over Haut Forez on an unforgettable hot air balloon flight.
If you opt for the second option – captive (or hovering) flight – equally extraordinary, the hot air balloon, held on the ground by moorings, rises to about 30 meters above sea level. Passengers then enjoy a 360° view of the countryside surrounding the Domaine et Château de Valinches, the Pilat Mountains and the Lyonnais Mountains.
In both cases, this will be a unique experience offering some incredible sensations; moreover, this magical activity is even for those who suffer from vertigo! Because your feet (and in other words the basket) are not in direct contact with the ground, you will not get dizzy.
Upon prior reservation.

OTHERS UPON REQUEST

Many other activities are offered: Horse-drawn carriage rides (during an event), archery, track game, mountain bike… don’t hesitate to ask for further information.
